Death Beckons

bymayeliza©

Death beckons through the quiet night
Softly, murmuring, sweet words
Words of calm, and peace of mind
Take the leap, it softly says, end it now before it’s too late.

A lonely song on a rainy day that touches deep
Please join me and don’t leave
I need you so, just close your eyes and stop
Stop breathing, stop being, stop hurting.

A steadfast friend that doesn’t leave
Take my hand and I’ll pull you through
I’ll make sure no one can hurt you
I’ll keep you safe in a dreamless sleep.

Death beckons through the quiet night
A screams that rips through my body as it slips away
My hand grasping, clutching at nothing
Tears drying on my face at sun rise.
